11:15 pm
francisco giants. this sports authority got a shipment of world series championship gear a half hour before the team actually won the title. the merchandise went on sale immediately after the final out. there was an enthusiastic line outside of the store earlier this evening. they were the giants fans who couldn't wait to get their hands on something that says world series champions on it. that includes, for now, a few different styles of t-shirts, they had pennants and flags that said world series champs but those sold out fairly quickly. all sports authority stores stayed open to accommodate fans who had to have that championship gear tonight. >> why couldn't couldn't this wait until later. >> i want to wear it to work tomorrow. i'm purchasing items for my husband and son who aren't able to be here this evening. >> i went to a halloween party dressed like this because i refused to go in costume.

11:18 pm
field and in the dugout but you don't get a feeling for it until you are celebrating as a fan. >> he retired in 2009 and said the organization put themselves on top today doing frg they had to do to win. >> it was pretty much a clinic on how to play a game of baseball the last four games. >> you know what i say is on the menu tonight? >> tiger meat in that's right. >> from the wardrobe, to the ride, san francisco is a wash in orange and black. >> yes, it is and we will look again at a helicopter shot over san francisco. this is near at&t park at third and king streets. as you can see there is one bonfire the middle of the street. there have been some small minor issues according to the police department throughout the city in the mission district and there at at&t park but nothing too serious. obviously the police department is trying to get the fires out so we don't have problems.
11:19 pm
we have people jumping over the fire and that could get purt hurt if they made a mistake. most of the crowd at at&t park and the emission district and civic center plaza are calm, peaceful, just wanting to join and celebrate the giant's win of the world series. we will go back to detroit for are reaction from the players in just a minute, too. there's another person jumping over the fire. that could get is somebody seriously hurt. police are trying to monitor the situation. we talked to a police officer at the beginning of the newscast and they have police in force and are trying to keep track of the the crowds throughout the city. we will come back to the giant and the world series win in a moment but another story right now. we are following developing news tonight regarding hurricane sandy which is headed to the east coast. here's some live pictures of times square in new york city. new york schools are closed tomorrow and all of the public transportation in new york city, manhattan is shut down as well.
11:20 pm
look at how quiet those streets are. hurricane sandy which is expected to make landfall in new jersey tomorrow, is also on a collision course with two other major storm systems. that is why some forecasters are calling this is a super storm. as many as 50 million people from the carolinas to maine are in sandy's path and evacuations are underway in several states. hurricane sandy is having a major impact on air travel across the country and here in the bay area, as well. this is the line at the united airlines counter at sfo set up for people who had their flights cancelled. not fun. some people waited in line more than four hours, they told us. many say they never got notice their flights were cancelled and couldn't get through to the airline on the phone. that added up to a frustrating day for thousands of travelers. >> in boston, we were hearing about the hurricane on thursday night, friday morning. there's no reason why a million dollar, pullty million dollar corporation that runs planes couldn't anticipated this and
11:21 pm
akilometer datd passengers days ago. >> a local rescue team will take off to the east coast tomorrow to take the lead in rescue operations related to hurricane sandy. the 129th rescue wing will be sending c-130 aircrafts with two specialized air rescue team and helicopter as well. they will most likely focus their efforts in north carolina. >> once the hurricane begins to settle in to the east coast, we will send forces where need be. so the helicopters can go to one location, the guardian angel para rescue forces, the swift water rescue forces can go to another. >> reporter: we're told that rescue wing will oversee all other agencies at the rescue site. it is one three rescue outfits of its dmiend the country. right now we want to check in on the weather situation on the east coast, as well as here. this is serious business what is going on in the east coast. >> in the next 24 hours we will see the storm crossing the coast
11:22 pm
looks like the atlantic coast of new jersey. winds sustained at 75 miles an hour. for now we are talking about a category one hurricane a tropical system. as it moves inland it will change identifities and be a super charged nor easter that will race inland. the time line looks like, winds 80 miles an hour and staying strong in to tuesday morning, winds 70 miles an hour. rainfall totals in the hill top locations impressive. this is what you see, a lot of moisture and rain. some locations close to a foot of rain. what you don't see is heavy snow. this is where the storm will transform itself in to a powerful nor'easter, pouring in cold air from canada and dropping one to two feet of snow toward west virginia and parts of pennsylvania. here's the winds. the reason why new york city looks like a ghosttown, you have evacuations taking place and a storm surge there around long island and coastal new jersey that could get close to four to six feet. there you see the strongest wind
11:23 pm
gusts aiming in on atlantic city. airport delays and cancellations will linger in to tuesday before the wind speeds back down and the conditions improve on the east coast later in the week. for us, we will see some changes around the middle of the week. we have had a nice, warm weekend but the pattern is about to shift as a trough forms around wednesday. during the day on wednesday, what we will find is rain in the north bay. by night time we will see the rest of the rain pushing through the bay area. if they are the championship parade, we will call it party cloudy skies. more clouds an 1:00. and by the time the parade is wrapping up, perhaps reliving the moment where the giants beat the cardinals may see some showers late in the day. parade time the start looks dry. temperatures tonight 40s and 50s. tomorrow high temperatures coming down and the sea breeze starting to pick up. low 70s in san jose. and upper 70s in the trivalley. 67 san francisco and 76 for santa rosa. cooling temperatures.
11:24 pm
no rain monday in to tuesday. i think by wednesday evening we will see the rain spread over the bay area. not the best timing for halloween. though the system is showing a little bit of a tendency so slow down. we want to keep halloween dry. plan an umbrella for that. >> fingers crossed. thank you, rob. bring in dave feldman of comcast sportsnet. he has a little more on the giants tonight, dave? >> yeah, you are right. look, they are world series champs for the second time in three years they brought out their brooms and swept the tigers in their home park and now can come home and celebrate a parade. the best team in baseball. how they did it and what's next.

11:30 pm
hardest outs in the game and did it in a one, two, three order. unbelievable. >> we bought in to something you don't see happen often. we bought in to playing for each other, we bought in to loving playing for each otheren, and, you know, it's very unique. i never really been a part of any other group that would buy in as much as we did. that everyone was pulling the same direction. >> to get two in three years it's unbelievable. it's something i think this time around i appreciate it even more. because i understand the difficulty of doing it. >> all right. that was jamie from comerica park. we talk about a pitching rotation that is probably all coming back. one of the best in baseball, probably the best in baseball. why couldn't they repeat again? before we look ahead look back and show you how they got there

hello, florence. >> hey there, diane. you know why we love this? it is because of the great stories. one of the greatest stories through the whole world series was the pitching that think giants got from their starters. starts in game one with barry zito and carries on with madison baumgartner and vogelsong and cain tonight. you think back to zito leaving the mound after game five of the nlcs propelling the giants back to san francisco and getting the game one start and being so impressive. i want to show you a scene. after things calm down a bit in the clubhouse tonight. you have got larry behr, the president and ceo of the giants to express his gratitude to zito for hanging in there and being a man of great principles to not hang his head and say look i
11:38 pm
want to be this team's pitcher that can take you to game one of the world series and he did this and here's -- we talked to him about it after he had a moment that barry zito expressed great gratitude and larry expresentationed his gratitude. >> as a president of the team a moment like that has to mean everything. >> barry is -- i can't tell you anybody in sports i have more respect for than him as a person. barry zito had a chance to blame people, to give up, to go after the press, whatever. and all he did is say i have to get better. that means a lot. he is a quality person. everything in the world to help other people and so you want good things to happen to good people. >> your manager and general manager know how to push the right buttons and make the right moves. what made this happen the second time in three years? >> i think what made the
11:39 pm
difference was they were on it and the team was on it and that we just knew that there was -- that we had the talent, we had the pitch, we had the -- the recipe was there, similar recipe to 2010, different ingredients but similar recipe which is strong pitching, very opportunistic and great pitching and one of the best stories of it was the defense they played. >> really why we love this. and this team so much is because it was a team ta wouldn't die and there are so many great stories. in 2010 they were the band of misfits. this is the team that wouldn't be eliminated and they sweep the tigers in the world series and bring home a championship. back to the bay area in san francisco and we will see you in detroit with more reports. let's send it back to you in the bay area from comerica park. it's rain bug beautiful here tonight because the giants are world champs. >> that's wonderful.
